The Great Crusade is over and long forgotten or so thinks Duncan , son of Murdo until his uncle scarred and bitter from his years in the Holy Land returns home to die. With him come tales of treasure beyond all imagining and of a relic even holier than the revered Iron Lance. The Black Rood the prayer worn blood stained remnant of the True Cross has led the Crusaders to their greatest victory before it mysteriously dissapeared.
The Rood and its power mean as much to the Cele Ce, the ancient faith ad to papal Christendom. And in the wake of a shattering loss Duncan sets sail on his own pilgramage to the East following the steps his father tooke to Byzantium long ago. Accompanied by a disobediant vassal and a most impious monk he follows the White Priest on a road known to few and deadly to all but the pure in Heart. Part 2 in the Celtic Crusades Trilogy.

Fictional story of man who goes searching for a piece of the True Cross. Enjoyable read.
